central's world news headquarters in new york, this is the daily show with jon stewart. (cheers and applause) captioning sponsored by comedy central >> jon: welcome to the daily show, my name is jon stewart, man! do we have a good show for you tonight. tonight's guest peter tomsen, author of a new book "the wars of afghanistan" that's right, plural, wars. as you know, debt ceiling discussions, coming down to the wire. political leaders on both sides pulling out all the stops. all the stops. like the kind of stops that high school football coaches use before homecoming games in particular at thiscious small towns. >> kevin mccarthy a third ranking republican in the house urged republicans to unite behind boehner's plan by showing this clip from the movie "the town" >> the town? (laughter) "the town", no rudy-- "rudy" "brian song" or "300" or "rocky" or "rocky 2" or "rocky 3" or really any of the "rockies" you went with the boston bank rubbers in nun costumes clip. >> well, there is going to be good. (laughter) let's see the clip-- (cheers and applause) >> that the republicans use
are we going to take? (laughter) (applause) >> jon: let me see if i understand this metaphor. the establishment republicans are saying to the tea party upstarts hey, you know the violent, unstable borderline socio path from "the town" who's useful in a pinch but whose suicidal single minded mania will ultimately be his downfall? that's you guys. (laughter) and the guy who is stuck in an uneasy alliance with you but doesn't really like you and ultimately saves himself by walking away from you as you are dying, that's us. (laughter) so do we have your vote? (laughter) i'm going to assume most of the tea party coalition has not seen the whole movie. >> allen west liked what he heard. >> so i got up and told the speaker i will drive the car. (laughter) quick, robin, to the bat [bleep] mobile. still, if nothing else, the democratic response to the republican's use of that clip from the movie "the town" did lead to one of my favorite recent moments in cable news. i give you chuck schumer maschugana movie breakdown. >> in the scene they inspire their house freshman, one of the crook
that is apparently unraveling. harris is watching breaking news for us today. harris, what do you have? >> jon, the big question is whether or not his defense attorneys will actually ask for this case and the charges to be dropped, and what the judge will say about that, or, if there's some other reason for them to meet. you know what, what we're learning is there are details that have come out about the accuser in this case, and her past, that even had the prosecution now asking questions about this woman. questions that this trial could hinge on, because she is their witness. the only way that they can really press sexual assault charges against dominic strauss-kahn is with her testimony, convincingly, so it has been said, by prosecutors up until now. will defense attorneys for dominic strauss-kahn then ask this judge to dismiss the charges based on the fact that the prosecution may or may not have enough evidence to go forward. we're watching this, that meeting is coming up, those manhattan prosecutors and defense lawyers, meeting in an office. as soon as we know what -- what has happened,
. it was believed they forged a partnership, but jon karl is in washington, and the speaker fired off a letter just before we came on the air tonight? >> reporter: that's right. the speaker and the president were on the verge of an historic deal that would have cut spending by $3.5 trillion, dealt with the debt crisis and raised that debt ceiling. now, the speaker has fired off this letter to all the members of the house, saying the deal, the talks are over. he says it has become evident that the white house is simply not serious about ending the spending binge. in the end, the speaker writes, we could not connect. i'm told this broke down over a disagreement over how much to raise tax revenues. >> and jon, you know it wasn't long after we learned that this letter was coming that the president said he was going to fire back then, too. here's what the president just said, we'll get your reaction herere >> we have run out of time and they are going to have to explain to me how it is that we are going to avoid default. and they can come up with any plans s at they want and bring them up here and we wi
side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.
